As a student you may experience a range of issues that can cause barriers to learning, such as strained relationships, increased anxiety, alcohol/drug problems, feeling down, difficulty concentrating and/or lack of motivation. These mental health concerns or stressful events may lead to diminished academic performance or reduce a student's ability to participate in daily activities. Amarillo College offers services to assist you with addressing these and other concerns you may be experiencing. If you or someone you know are suffering from any of the aforementioned conditions, you can learn more about the broad range of confidential mental health services available on campus by calling the AC Counseling Center at 806-371-5900.

This class is being conducted in an online format. Our communication will be completed primarily through our course email and discussion forums. This is a different setting from the traditional classroom-based lecture course; nevertheless, I expect each student to conduct him/herself in the most professional manner. Disrespect for any person, such as personal attacks in weekly comments or simply being rude toward fellow classmates or the instructor, will not be tolerated. (You need to start practicing good, professional interpersonal communication for your future career is extremely dependent upon dealing with many different people in many different and possibly difficult situations...all of which must be handled PROFESSIONALLY. Start that practice here in our class with your professor and classmates.)
RESPONSE TIME: I will do my best to get to your email/questions as soon as I possibly can, usually within a day. Please use the subject line of your email to let me know what your email is in reference to AND your section number as well as your AC ID#. This helps me tremendously in handling email which is most emergent first and in finding you. Also please remember, especially at the first of the semester, there are several of you...only one of me!
* GROUP TESTING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. With computer reports and tracking, there are methods by which this practice can be detected. I have in the past and will obtain testing data should I suspect group test taking. I would ask you to consider the kind of health care professional you want caring for you or your loved ones (child, husband, wife, parents, grandparents). One who cheated his/her way through classes?
If it becomes apparent to me that you are collaborating on tests in this class, appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken including possibility of the following: your receiving an "F" in this class, and being dropped from the course with no refund of monies, an appearance in front of your professor and AC's Disciplinary Committee, and/or possible suspension from AC for the current term or longer. See AC's Student Rights and Responsibilities a copy of which can be obtained by asking at any AC Assistance Center or online see Forms and Policies.
There will be 8 tests. Remaining grades will come from the Mindtap Assignments, Getting Started assignments, and "The Doctor" video assignment. Grades will be weighted as follows:
Test Average 50%
Cengage Mindtap Assignments Average 40%
Getting Started 10%
The Doctor Video Extra Credit (3 points added to final grade)
Letter Grade is calculated as follows: 89.5 - 100 = A
79.5 - 89.4 = B
69.5 - 79.4 = C
59.5 - 69.4 = D
59.4 or below = F
Make up tests are allowed at the professor's discretion. Arrangements for such make up exams must be made with the professor.
